Boston, MA (PRWEB) July 20, 2011
Toronto-based STYLISH GIRL http://www.stylishandcool.com, virtual closet and fashion app, is excited to be partnering with Columbus, OH based GRETCHY http://www.gretchy.com, members-only online retailer for discounted designer dresses and “trade ins”. “STYLISH GIRL + GRETCHY” opens its pop up shop doors on July 30th, 2011 at 12 noon EST to a worldwide market via the iPhone . The 36 hour sale will feature limited quantity, current season, designer dresses for sample sale prices by favorite designer brands like Diane Von Furstenberg, Emilio Pucci, Herve Leger, M Missoni, Elizabeth & James, and 3.1 Phillip Lim.
STYLISH GIRL + GRETCHY has leveraged the STYLISH GIRL virtual closet platform in a way that will definitely please! DDN Media’s Dimitar Popovski, STYLISH GIRL Co-Founder, says, "We received tons of emails from users telling us how they cannot wake up in the morning without checking the STYLISH GIRL app to see what outfit they will wear…a large portion of the users are heavily involved in seeing what is in the stores, making outfits and buying items online." Where STYLISH GIRL users catalogue their wardrobes via their iPhone, iTouch or iPad, GRETCHY members ”trade in” dresses in order to refresh their wardrobes. Gretchen Hackmann, GRETCHY co-Founder, explains, “Our members can essentially build their own cash account to buy new dresses on GRETCHY by trading in dresses they will no longer wear. STYLISH GIRL + GRETCHY will now further enable our members to visualize their dresses via iPhone, decide what new dresses they need to buy, and which dresses to trade in!” As Britt Hackmann, GRETCHY co-founder, puts it, “Today’s fashion is all about maximizing the ROI on the clothes that you own and the clothes that you need to buy.”
